Essential Elements for Mathematics Standards Review Process
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has a transparent and comprehensive process for reviewing and revising academic standards. The process began with a Notice of Intent to review and a public comment period which began on July 13, 2021. The State Superintendent’s Standards Review Council examined those comments and recommended revising the standards. The State Superintendent authorized the writing of new Wisconsin Essential Elements for Mathematics.
The writing committee has developed a draft of the new standards. The first draft was released on January 24, 2022 for a public review and provided to the education committees of the legislature. After the 30 day comment period ends, the State Superintendent’s Academic Standards Review Council will provide further review. The State Superintendent then determines adoption of the standards.

Wisconsin's Vision for Student Success in Mathematics
This newly revised Wisconsin Vision For Mathematics was written based on the work of WI educators over the course of the last few years, particularly through the writing of the Instructional Practice Guides and the revised Wisconsin Standards for Mathematics.
Mathematical proficiency is essential for each and every student in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Standards for Mathematics demonstrate a commitment to high expectations for what students should learn and the instructional shifts that will prepare them for their future.
Educators and leaders at all levels must take on the challenge and the responsibility to ensure that all students are mathematically literate.
Mathematics is a human activity of experiencing, interacting with, and relating to the world. Recognizing and developing relationships between and among the people, practices, and content are crucial for student success.
